Precious Memories

I live in Australia but I'm originally from Harrow. My mother wasn't well so we made a trip over in early August of this year and spent 5 weeks with her to get her back on her feet. Mom hadn't seen the riverside for years so we made a day of it. When we took my Mother and her partner around the riverside we took heaps of photos. Not just on our phones but on our camera as well and my mother was the type when she was ready to go she just got up and made tracks. She was a bit unsteady on her feet and was using a wheelie frame so we usually jumped up pretty quick to stay near her. While down at the flag we sat under a tree for a bit and well up we get and we're off. We got back to the car and this young fellow on a bicycle rides up to us and says "you forgot this miss" it was my camera loaded with heaps of precious memories.
When we left Amherstburg Mom was doing so well and was so happy that we made the trip over and that my sister came from Edmonton. Mom had her 2 girls together with her. Little did we know that this was the last time that it would happen. You see mom had a stroke and passed away peacefully with her siblings next to her.
So this young man has no idea just how special he is and I really wished I had gotten his name. We gave him a fridge magnet that says Cairns Australia and a couple maple candies.
Thank you young man we will forever be grateful for you!
